58. Vice President Lyndon Baines Johnson

Lyndon Baines Johnson succeeded to the U.S. presidency after the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. He has been described as the man with the best experience to be president, being one of only 4 politicians (the other three were John Tyler, Andrew Johnson and Richard Nixon) to have held the four highest elective offices; U.S. Representative, U.S. Senator, U.S. Vice President and U.S. President.

Presented in this grouping is Vice President Johnson's Vice Presidential 1961-1963 automobile flag. Vice-presidential flags are less common than U.S. Presidential flags as they are not produced in the same numbers as presidential counterparts, nor are displayed as often.

Accompanying the flag are archival material which include photographs of LBJ during his vice-presidency and photographs taken during the fateful Texas Trip on which LBJ & Lady Bird accompanied JFK and Jackie. Among the ephemera are his account of the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy and well as other documents relating to JFK's final days and his own advancement to the U.S. Presidency.
